  1. More index racing is needed. Bracket racing is too confusing to the fans. I had a guy come up to my trailer Saturday after the 2nd time trial and ask me if I'd won the round. He was totally confused when I explained to him that we weren't racing yet. Also, street cars are non existent in the street class at the local track because it has been taken over by motorcycles. Last points race street had 1 car and 10 bikes in it. They need their own class. More street=more paying audience and more concessions.
  2. Well, talked to a friend of a friend who is from there and won't run his drag car down their track anymore. Says it isn't being prepped right. I'll take the advice for now and stay local this weekend since rain is predicted most of the week anyway.
  3. You're right, I had the two confused. Northstar looks like a good track, but too far north for me. Ennis is my northern limit.
  4. Hope to see you there! Yeah, people were pulling some pretty serious looking shit out of their huge ass trailers as we were leaving. Would have like to have seen some of that but had to get home.
  5. Winner got $1,000. Can't put a price tag on the fun I'm having! One of the best moments of the day was when the wife thought I'd lost the semifinals. We both turned it red, but he was worse so I got the automatic win as long as I didn't cross the center line. The wife was filming from behind and only saw my red light. She took a long time to get back to the trailer where I was in a great mood. I let out a whoop and went to high five her, which confused the hell out of her! The look on her face when I showed her the time slip was priceless!!
  6. Didn't go, rained out. There is another opportunity in my schedule to go there in 2 weeks. Will go unless weather or work keeps me from it.
  7. I hear through the Grapevine that Kennadale Drag Strip near Denton Tx is closing. http://www.texasraceway.com/
  8. 2nd place in Super Pro. I blew it in the finals. $500. 1st place was $1,000.
  9. Weather was fine, very humid but cool and no rain. This was my 1st time to this event. It was very well run. Even though car counts were a little low in some divisions, they still paid out full prize money, which some places don't do. Didn't see many vehicles in show and shine, those that were there were impressive. Probably the threat of bad weather kept a lot away.
  10. Planning on going, will race in Super pro. Hope to see a lot of forum members there!
  11. UPDATE: after 3 trips to the track I can report that there have been no leaks or problems, and the electric water pump cools the motor down very quickly in the pits!
  12. ...In Abeline, Tx this Saturday. Anybody run there before? What can you tell me about this place?
  13. Will look into their stuff, looks really nice!
  14. I wish it was. Currently 25 degrees in Central Texas, and looking at teens tomorrow :-( no racing for a while...
  15. Got the winter project finished: Motor plate Electric fuel pump braided steel radiator hoses I used the Spectre braided steel hoses from Summit. These hoses were a major pain in the ass! Hard as hell to get on the radiator/water pump nipples. Hose slightly too small and no give to it at all. Forget about using the fancy looking clamp covers, had to go get regular hose clamps. If I had it to do all over again I would do -AN connectors on the radiator, pump and motor plate and just use AN fittings on smaller diameter hoses.
